An estate sale find yesterday. I love getting to an estate sale and they have an end of sale special of "Fill a basket for $__." So, yesterday I got the awesome deal which included this potential Tango pedestal bowl!
However, I know nothing about determining whether a piece of glass is Tango. One thing that makes me think it is Tango, is, of course, the blue line on the top edge and the dark blue to black between the bottom of the bowl and top of the pedestal. Also, it appears handblown. The rim of the bowl is not a perfect circle and you can see stress marks at the bottom of the pedestal where it opens to the foot.
One thing that makes me wonder if it is Tango is that the bottom is not solid glass and the pedestal has a hole through it. It seems as if most Tango pieces I see have solid bottoms.
And, yes, sadly, there are a few chips on the bottom. :(
The bowl is 9 & 1/2 inches wide and stands 7 & 1/2 inches tall with the pedestal.
If this is authentic old Tango glass, who would have made it? Loetz?
As you can see, I need help. Can you help me?
Thanks!! - Mary
